Although we all love our chocolate, jelly beans and other miscellaneous Easter candy that’s so readily available, we can still include some nutrition in our day.  An easy way to do that is to minimize the quantity of candy and replace it with fruit and veggie snacks.  Apples and Pears add a number of nutrition into our daily lives.  With the amount of recipe’s out there, you can include them in your main course, as a side, dessert, drink or snack.  You can find some great recipes on our website at http://www.bortonfruit.com/fruit/recipes.html like the Apple Caramel Biscuit Bake for part of your brunch http://www.bortonfruit.com/fruit/recipe.html?recipeid=199 or a fun easy snack for your kids like the Apple Bunny http://www.bortonfruit.com/fruit/recipe.html?recipeid=194.

Using your favorite’s, try to come up with an idea similar to the below pictures!  You can create your own bunny snack using apples or pears to make everybody at the table smile while enjoying your tray and/or salad that was put together with a lovely Easter touch.
